Vintage Steampunk Christmas

Good Evening Everyone 

I have posted an entry for the

I have used an imge from Jem's Designs Christmas Steampunk  CD, 
printed onto photo paper.
I have inked and distressed the edges.
I used a sheet of Kanban Crafts Cherry Music Kandi Core card,
embossed with cogs and sanded, edges distressed and inked, mounted onto an
8 x 8 card blank whose edges I inked.

I added crochet lace ribbon and red vintage ribbon I grunged up;.I put some nuts and screws into a little plastic  "bubble"  packaging and attached to one window pane to 
create a steampunk shaker.

I cut some cogs from the Kandy Core card using tim holtz bigz die
to cut the card which I had previousl y
embossed with snowflakes and sanded. I inked the diecuts and mounted around
the steam punk cog cluster at the bottom of the image, topping with some metal bolts and cogs.

I added an angel wing and christmas bells to finish.
I hope you like the card.
